The Humax Wi-Fi Smart Plug

Humax has launched the Humax Wi-Fi Smart Plug, which the company said makes managing appliances and devices simple and safe, while enabling users to track energy consumption in the home.

The smart plug works with both Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz) and Bluetooth connections, without the need for a home hub.

Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, the Humax Wi-Fi Smart Plug can be controlled through voice activation, making it easy to switch devices on and off remotely – or to set timers and schedules, so homeowners will never forget to shut down important appliances before leaving the house or going to bed.

When paired with the dedicated Humax Smart Living app, users can create personalised schedules to automate lights, heaters and other devices to function at fixed times each day.

Each smart plug features a built-in energy monitor to check power consumption of plugged-in electrical devices, and help cut down on energy bills. The plug measures current (mA), power (W), voltage (V) and total kWh, allowing users to track trends with historical data and graphs, all through the Humax Smart Living app, which is free to download for iOS and Android.

Integrating seamlessly with the Humax AURA 4K Freeview Play recorder, which is built on the Android TV platform, the Humax Wi-Fi Smart Plug can be connected to the Google Home smart home system, allowing the plug to be operated via the AURA remote control.

The Wi-Fi Smart Plug is equipped with an automatic child-proof closure mechanism that covers the pin entry points for protection against accidental shocks.

James Sandison, head of UK sales at Humax, said: “With the rising cost of energy, we are all looking for ways to save costs in our homes. Thanks to the Humax Wi-Fi Smart Plug, families can keep a close eye on energy consumption, while controlling their appliances from anywhere.

“With the ability to remotely check whether devices have been switched on or off, the smart plug also provides owners with added peace of mind when away from home.”
